Eggs and more Eggs


Wow, check this out! There is a farm right up the road from the coalmine. This man creates eggs to supply a hatchery. When his young hens start laying, the eggs are not fertilized and do not hatch so he can't sell them to the hatchery. A couple times a year, he brings a truck load of eggs to the coal mine and gives them away to the miners. What in the world am I going to do with 30 dozen eggs?

LOL, last night I poked fun at Orvis and Mungo for wanting to dehydrate eggs and store them in their long term food preps. Guess what, I'm not giggling now! This evening I will be learning about how to dehydrate myself some eggs.

  4. hmmm, beat them and freeze them for use in baking. I didn't care for the taste or texture of the home made dehydrated eggs.
    consider coating them in vasaline and storing in cool location for up to 6 weeks.
    Pickled eggs. LOTS of egg salad. Egg caseroles, eggs for lunch, eggs for dinner...

  6. They will keep for a very long time if they are not washed. You can freeze them if you separate them. They look like great eggs!
